October Accessory Of The Month

The hallmark of excellence in free-motion techniques is the ability to keep the stitch length even and consistent as the fabric is guided without the assistance of the feed dogs. The BERNINA Stitch Regulator provides beginners with the confidence to master increasingly popular free-motion techniques. For more experienced free-motion stitchers, the BERNINA Stitch Regulator offers the added security of consistent stitch length, providing the confidence to try more challenging techniques.

Once upon a time,
there was a faraway land called the Enchanted Realm. The people of the land got along harmoniously for many centuries…
That is until Queen Black gained control of the Silver Tree Forest.
It was not long before happy endings turned into nightmares, as the ruling Kingdom of Gillyshire suffered repeated attack, and the villains began to gain control. The mystic mountains filled with nefarious monsters and were no longer safe, and wicked witches took over the charmed forest.

Queen Black has shocked the realm, and has invited all of the territories to the Dark Castle of the Silver Tree Forest to sign a peace treaty.
She may have evil intentions.
Nonetheless, you have been invited by Queen Black.

This is where your story starts….
